NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
554 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Short term...(tonight through Tuesday night) 
issued at 228 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Forecast confidence relatively good through the first half of the 
short term period, then drops off somewhat toward the end due to 
model timing and track differences. 


A storm system developing over the northern plains will push a cold 
front toward our region on Monday. Southerly flow ahead of this 
system will bring a surge of deep moisture across the region 
tonight. This combined with a weak short wave moving across the area 
may produce enough lift to generate small precipitation chances over 
our far western counties late tonight. 


As the front draws ever closer on Monday, precipitation chances will 
increase from west to east across the entire area. Monday night into 
Tuesday morning models show a lobe of the parent 500 mb low 
developing/digging a trough southward across the plains. This will 
enhance upper support and combined with the passage of the front, 
precipitation chances will increase significantly. By late Monday 
night/early Tuesday morning, there may be enough surface based and 
elevated instability to warrant the mention of thunder over the far 
southeast sections of the County Warning Area. 


There may be a lull Tuesday afternoon in precipitation chances if we 
get dry slotted in the wake of the front, but not confident enough 
to reduce those pop grids at this time. For the same reason as in 
the above paragraph, mentioned thunder chances over the eastern and 
southeastern sections of the County Warning Area all day Tuesday. 


Tuesday night with the deepening and northeast track of the 
aforementioned 500 mb trough, models are inducing a surface low/wave on 
the front and bringing another surge of moisture and elevated 
precipitation chances across the region. However, models not in good 
agreement on how this will play out at this time. The GFS is clearly 
the most aggressive with the development of this feature and the quantitative precipitation forecast 
it generates over our area. The nam12 and sref not that excited 
about it at all and keep almost all precipitation chances over the 
southeast sections. Models still showing a sliver of instability 
over the southern pennyrile region of western Kentucky Tuesday 
evening, so have a mention of thunder there. 


Thanks to surrounding offices for forecast coordination. 


Long term...(wednesday through sunday) 
issued at 228 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Medium confidence in extended forecast. 
The European model (ecmwf) has much better run to run continuity and the most best 
continuity among other models ensembles. The GFS has the greatest 
run to run variability and would be most likely the odd one out. 


At the start of the extended or Christmas eve...a broad upper level 
wave exiting the plains and moving toward the Mississippi Valley. 
Models are good general agreement with this feature. They do differ 
a great deal with the placement and movement of a developing surface 
low along the front over Kentucky while the parent low moves through lm. 
Most of the operational models and ensembles bring the surface low 
up through eastern Kentucky. The GFS however is slightly more west of the 
aforementioned models and tracks the surface low through central Kentucky. 
Regardless of which solution they all agree that surface temps will 
be too warm for much of wintry weather. However forecast sounding 
and BUFKIT suggest a possible mix as the moisture exits the area. 
Considering this out to day 4 dont want to box myself in or create a 
possible flip flop in the forecast will probably go with a chance of 
a mix in case moisture lingers longer or the cold air arrives faster. 
The colder air is not here at least until the afternoon so will hold 
off any chance of a mix until then. 


The nest system arrives Friday with a vertically stacked low moving 
through the Great Lakes region with a cold front extending southward 
through the forecast area into the Gulf by 18z Friday. This system 
will be moisture starved and warm for this time of year. Yet once 
again we could rain mix or changeover to snow before ending Friday 
night. Once again little impact expected with this system. 


As for temps went mostly above normal through the period and there 
was slight increase on a few days from previous run.

Aviation... 
issued at 553 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


With the inital wave from the upper low moves into the area, 
ceilings will become widespread VFR across the weather forecast office pah taf sites 
from 04z-06z...with a sharp transition to MVFR mainly after 09-10z 
Monday. As the system sharpends over the area. IFR ceilings and 
visibilities will be most common near a kcgi-kevv line from 12z- 
21z on Monday with an implied surface boundary near these taf locations.
